There has been a case of mumps reported within the nursery, should you think that your immune system is compromised in any way please discuss this with your GP.
It would be appreciated if all parents could empty their child’s sandshoe bag to allow us to have these washed for next term. Thank you.
As we approach the summer holidays it has certainly been a busy time!
We had a fantastic turnout for both our graduation services and we hope that you enjoyed watching your child on their special day. All children received a book and certificate with pre schoolers also being awarded a medal.
Today we have had a magician entertain the children both morning and afternoon and this seems to have been an enjoyable experience for them.
On Friday, weather dependent we will venture into the woods for our Teddy Bears Picnic. Children will be provided with an alternative teddy bear themed snack to celebrate the end of term.
By contributing to our nursery funds you enable us to make these events possible for all children.
The staff at Madras Family Centre would like to thank parents/carers for their continued support in all our endeavours.
Madras Family Centre have invited along a magician to perform a magic show as a special treat for the children on Wednesday, 17th June, this will take place instead of gym this day. All children to come to nursery during their normal hours.
Graduation for all children will take place on 12th June at St Thomas’s Church Hall. Both children moving on to school and moving into their pre school year will take part. We hope you are able to join us on this day. All children should be dropped off at St Thomas’ church hall at 9am and 12.40pm. Parents should sign in children and return for the event at 10am and 1.30pm.

Madras Family Centre – Duck Race
A big thank you to all who bought ducks and to all who went along on the day to support this event. A special thanks to Mrs Gardner (Joel’s mum) for organising this and the ducky dip. It is very much appreciated. Our final total raised was a fantastic £456.00, this will be used to purchase additional resources as chosen by the children.

Check out our pupils section on our website where we have posted some great pictures of the purple group children enjoying the sunshine whilst carrying out their outdoor learning!
Every week we will be posting from another group what activities they have been learning.
Following the success of the ‘Let’s Play Programme’ over the holiday period we would like to share some of the ideas of playing outdoor with more of our parents. We are conscious of not organising too many parental events so have decided to make a change to the PLP meeting and will run a session for parents and children on outdoor play instead, this will take place at 11.00am and 12.30pm.
